    Chronocalamity - I completely agree with you when I first started with web design I used w3schools.com for learning everything. The only thing that I would suggest is if you don't go all the way through the catigory you are learning it kind of teaches you some bad things.

    That is a great list of resources, here is one more to add under the layout section w/ pretty much all the different variations you can think of.
    All the books listed are great have read all but one of them. I really liked CSS Mastery very well written great examples.

    One of the best ways to learn HTML and CSS is to get on Firefox and use the Firebug add-on to look at other people's code. You can easily see how they structure code and what CSS properties they use to make the layout work. It is kind of like reverse engineering and you will learn so much as you try to figure out how someone set up a certain layout.

    These are good resources. While learning the codes needed to become an expert in CSS, it also helps to be inspired with css driven sites. So be sure to visit CSS galleries as such:

    http://www.csselite.com/
    http://www.cssheroes.com/
    http://designshack.co.uk/gallery
    http://www.cssdrive.com/

    At times you will be surprised about the things you can do with CSS

    I would like to suggest you to go through these tutorials in order to get the grasp on the functioning of the CSS and how it is used. I would like to suggest you to must go through the tutorial like w3schools, maxdesign and html.net. These kind of tutorial will strengthen your concepts and also tells the new tricks for the this language and get the grip on it for design the CSS Templates and same for joomla templates

    This is brilliant - thank you for sharing!

    I was just doing some research into which book to buy (I'd narrowed it down to D. S. McFarland's 'CSS: The Missing Manual' and R. Andrew's 'The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks') but will certainly be making use of these marvellous resources before I go and spend any money!

    - Does anyone have experience with either of these books by the way?

    I have R. Andrew's 'The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks', edition 3, and as a basis for understanding CSS its decent.
    It doesn't begin to touch CSS3, though, and that is what i am looking into now.
